For the ninth year, Team Webster Works is participating in The Gateway MS Bike Ride, a two-day cycling event supporting a cure for multiple sclerosis (MS) and providing services to local individuals impacted by multiple sclerosis.

Team Webster Works has established a fundraising goal of $5,000 for this year’s ride.

To meet that goal, we need cyclists to participate in the ride and help raise donations. This year’s ride takes place Sept. 7-8 in Columbia, Mo. There are routes for every interest and ability, ranging from 20 miles to 100 miles both days.

In addition to 3,000 cyclists, multiple volunteer opportunities exist throughout the MS Ride weekend — preparing food, assisting at rest stops and cheering cyclists as they finish each day.

If you are interested in participating in the MS event or want to join Team Webster Works, contact Delyle Bowen at delylebowen08@webster.edu or Ken Nickless at nickleke@webster.edu. To learn more out more about  the event go to the Gateway Area Chapter Bike MS page.

MS is a chronic disease of the central nervous system with unpredictable symptoms that can include numbness, blurred vision, paralysis and blindness. It is thought to affect more than 2.1 million people worldwide; a recent research study shows that one out of every two people in your neighborhood knows someone living with multiple sclerosis.
